NEW YORK (PIX11) — As New Yorkers, its our birthright to “kvetch” about things. Everything– especially politics and elected officials.
However, if you don’t vote, do you really have a right to complain?
According to statistics, a dismal 880,000 registered voters actually show up to the polls on Primary Day. That’s less than 25 percent of the 4 million people registered to vote in New York City.
However, if you would take a public poll, it seems like 100 percent of the population complain 100 percent of the time on all the things happening and not happening on the local level.
PIX11’s Andrew Ramos hit the streets of Queens in search of voters opting out of Tuesday’s primaries, to see if they would take a pledge not to talk smack about any of the public officials elected this year, for the next four years.
